MEMBER VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS

As a non-profit organization, we are run and fueled by volunteers. Every job that keeps the Art League going from gallery shows, meetings, Arts Fest, arranging demonstrations, marketing, membership coordination, Show and Sale and Studio Tour are put on by member volunteers.

  • If you participate in ANY WVAL event where your art is displayed, you are required to volunteer in some capacity, at least once per year!
  • Even if you choose not to display your art you are urged to GET INVOLVED!
  • Volunteering is the best way to meet other artists and have a richer experience with the Art League.

We would love to have you join us!

We have many members who are not artists but appreciate art and want to support the Art League’s activities. We welcome you as well and appreciate your interest. Just check off on the Membership Application that you are an Arts Supporter. We won’t expect you to attend meetings or volunteer, but we would welcome you to do it.
